Tassimo Pro Office Coffee Brewer - Perfect for Your Small Business
Tassimo and Bosch are coming out with a pro line of single serve coffee makers aimed at the small office coffee market called Tassimo Pro. We don't have many details, but we do know the Tassimo Pro has an adjustable coffee cup stand, and looks to be hardier than it's consumer market cousins.
We're also not sure if you'll be able to get the brewer as a consumer, or will have to qualify as a small business. We're also wondering if consumer T-Discs will work in the Tassimo Pro brewer, or if there will be different sized T-Discs for the home business market. The Tassimo Pro small business brewer will debut in Q3 of this year.

Ok, it's now March 2010 and I don't see any further information on this. Does anyone have an update? I'm currently evaluating machines for my office, and I would love to go with Tassimo. Unfortunately, if I can't get a pro grade model, I won't be able to proceed.
The biggest problem with Tassimo is -- they don't have any supplier other than Kraft themselves! Starbucks is good but most of the other coffee is made for a European market and doesn't taste good.
They will have a huge winner if they license the T Disc technology to other manufacturers. Absent that, I've decided to defect to the Keurig, appreciating its greater variety.
Very interesting... judging by the animation, it looks like this "pro" model will use entirely new T-Discs that have the barcode near the front of the tab vs. offset on an angle to the side. As a result, you likely won't be able to use the current consumer-level T-Discs unless there's a second notch in the bottom "lip" of the brewing chamber (to allow proper alignment of the old offset barcodes on older discs). I can't foresee an average consumer wanting this machine if they can't use their old T-Discs in it. I'd also be curious to know if this model features a direct water line hookup like the commercial Keurig models do. Will be interesting to see how Kraft/Bosch develop this product.
